What Do Dogs Really Dream About?

You’ve probably caught your sleeping pup kicking their legs or wagging their tail. Research shows that canines experience REM sleep similar to humans — dreams included. Especially when they’re in really deep sleep on an extra comfortable mattress.

Here’s our hypothesis for what doggie dreams are probably made of:

  1. Fire hydrants. Yellow ones, red ones, short ones, tall ones.
  2. Just used tennis shoes. Gym day is their favorite day.
  3. Squirrels. Why count sheep when you can count squirrels?
  4. Their human. Of course they dream about their best friend.
  5. Missing socks. The more, the merrier. For them.
  6. The postman. Except the postman is delivering treats, not mail.
  7. Having a play date with the neighbor’s dog. No humans allowed.
  8. The food dropped under the table. One man’s leftovers is another dog’s treasure.
  9. Where they put that one bone. The longest game of hide-and-seek.
  10. Going on a long walk alone. What do you mean… a leash?
  11. Taking a bath in peanut butter. With extra treats on the side.
  12. Raining cats, no dogs. A real dream come true.
